About this sweater:
Named after the Skaha lake in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia Canada, this sweater is great for cool evenings and relaxing at the park. This is a raglan sweater with 1 inch of positive ease worked from the bottom up. Depending on the amount of ease you would like you can either choose to go up or down a size. There is a basket weave panel in the centre front that adds interest and texture. This sweater is unisex, can be knit for a woman or a man and can be knit with or without body shaping as both are included in the pattern. It is knit in worsted weight yarn and is an interesting knit with unique increases.
